Scenario Planning Before You Adopt in Ukraine

Think about and prepare for different scenarios.What if the
referral for that "perfect" child doesn't come along? Like many
other life-changing events, adoptions are a product of
opportunity and availability. How flexible are you? What if the
darling girl in your referral turns out to be the youngest of
three siblings waiting for a home? If the adorable boy who is the
apple of every eye in the orphanage also has a cleft palate? If
the sweet-looking toddler clearly becomes attached to your
husband on the first visit but won't give you the time of
day?Realize that there is no such thing as a "perfect" child and
that, when you sign up to parent, you are signing up for any
challenges that child may introduce.

If you or someone you love want to welcome a child into their
lives and families, as my husband and I did, we can help.
